The Khakee: The Bihar Chapter trailer then cuts to show the alternate side – that of notorious gang lord Chandan Mahto (Avinash Tiwary), as he succumbs to a life of crime. “If it’s a crime to speak out against injustice, then I’m a criminal,” he said on a political campaign, hoping to convince the public to join his crusade. Obviously, he succeeded, creating a band of criminals, armed with firearms, gunning down citizens of Sheikhpura, to the extent that such attacks have become commonplace in the state.
“This honesty, this fairness, this bravery – all of these are expensive adornments of the police department,” senior officer Mukteshwar Chaubey (Ashutosh Rana) told Lodha, essentially downplaying the heinous events. “You don’t wear them every day.”
Enraged by ignorance, Lodha sets a deadline, saying, “Before August 15, we will liberate Sheikhpura from Chandan Mahto”, triggering a confrontation between the police and the criminals, with great losses on each side. Set between the years 2000 and 2006 in Bihar, Netflix seems to have changed the names of the villainous characters in Khakee: The Bihar Chapter, as the original assaults were led by an Ashok Mahto, who was accused of mass killings and kidnappings.
Khakee: The Bihar Chapter also stars Jatin Sarna (Sacred Games) as Mahto’s accomplice, Nikita Dutta (The Big Bull), Ravi Kishan (The Whistleblower), Abhimanyu Singh (Sooryavanshi), Anup Soni (Crime Patrol), Aishwarya Sushmita (Special Ops 1.5), Shraddha Das (Ek Mini Katha) and Vinay Pathak (Bheja Fry).
“When we set out to bring Amit Lodha’s story based on his book to life, we knew we had to work extremely hard given the vision we were working on,” director Bhrav Dhulia said in a prepared statement. . “At the heart of it, Khakee: The Bihar Chapter is a strong character drama that not only tells the story of good versus evil, but how they use each other to survive.”
